Organization: Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center
Job Title: Project Specialist
City: Amesbury
State: MA
Annual Salary: $58,000 to $60,000
Qualifications:
Preference for advanced degree in law, criminal justice, public health or another related field. Experience can be substituted for advanced degree.
5 years’ experience in the domestic violence. Preference for experience with multidisciplinary teams and /or systemic reform.
Description:
The Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center is a nationally recognized leader in the fight to end domestic violence.  In 2005, we launched the country’s first Domestic Violence High Risk Team (DVHRT) which has since been identified by the White House as a best practice in domestic violence homicide prevention.
We provide training and technical assistance to support communities nationwide in improving their response to domestic violence and implementing homicide reduction strategies. Training and technical assistance is centered around implementation and adaptation of the Domestic Violence High Risk Team Model and the Danger Assessment for Law Enforcement risk screening tool. These models integrate evidence-based risk assessment into the domestic violence response system and initiate risk-informed multidisciplinary collaborative interventions.
We are seeking a Project Specialist to fulfill the growing demand for our homicide prevention strategies. The Project Specialist must be highly organized with strong writing, oratory and analytical skills. The Project Specialist will provide training and technical assistance across the nation to advocates, law enforcement, allied criminal justice professionals, and community leaders to develop multidisciplinary responses to high-risk domestic violence cases.
This is a fast-paced and demanding environment that includes working with communities to identify and close the gaps in their domestic violence response systems.
The ideal candidate will be an experienced trainer with a baseline understanding of domestic violence, risk assessment, and the criminal justice system; however, we will entertain applications from those with relevant, transferable experience; specifically, with victim services, marginalized populations, or crisis management.
